Find a spiritual discipline that you can rely on to nurture yourself during difficult times. It can be something as simple as taking a walk alone in a quiet setting, or sitting for a few minutes in a special spot, or simply taking a few minutes to breathe and calm the body and mind. This will provide a quiet contrast to the racket going on around you. It will comfort you and steady you. It will offer a slight respite from the chaos that abounds. It will bring you a few moments of peace and serenity.
Continually and consciously find your balance. Tune into your body, your central nervous system and your emotional state throughout the day. Notice what is going on inside. Are you calm? Centered? Feeling peaceful? Or are you the opposite of those states? Why? Suggest to yourself that as you tune in that you also close your eyes for a moment or two. Breathe. Let go of what is currently on your mind and just be in the moment. Breathe deeply a few times. Notice how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally. Self care can be as simple as that to begin with. Just pause, breathe, and let go with a sigh. Simple.
Stay connected to your own truth. Each day check in with your body and ask what it needs. What can you do for your body today? Find techniques to calm the mind and relax the body that work for you and that you are apt to do on a regular basis so that they become second nature. Stay attuned to what your body is telling you throughout the day, to its changes and needs, to its desires and urges. Your body is the vehicle for the rest of you, for your spirit energy and your High Self, and thus it’s important to pay attention to it and to maintain it with more than just food and sleep. Give it your attention in a good and nourishing way and it will reward you in turn.
Reconfirm your commitment to self each day. Look yourself in the eyes and with love and compassion reset yourself upon your path of change and growth. Your spirit is always with you, as are additional helpers and guides, too many to name, all eager to be of assistance. Close your eyes and feel their presence. Thank them and then go about your day in the best way possible so that your progress is unimpeded.
Sometimes it’s hard to see where you are going or the next step to take as each day comes and another challenge arises. Stay connected to your spirit, asking always for guidance and direction, for the right choice to make and action to take. There is always someone helping you. Even if you do not see or hear any response, someone is helping you.
